The unfortunate pandemic time didn’t stop us to continue with our Aus Den Sieben Tagen project! On the 13th of May, in Utrecht as a part of the wonderful Synthese festival, we performed this site specific show in our chamber formation outside at the Beton-T space. We had a great fun and are thankful to the Synthese organisers and all the audience to help us creating such lovely atmosphere!
The beginning of May has been very productive indeed! Continuing in our cooperation with the Prague Music Performance festival in the Czech Republic, we made a spectacular performance of two pieces by the innovators of minimalisms – Terry Riley and La Monte Young. On the 4th of May, in DOX+, Prague with a wonderful group of performers, we played In C and Composition #7.
We can’t wait to come again next year and create another one-of-a-kind performance!
All pictures below were made by Marek Bouda.
Over the first half of this year, we have been enjoying our monthly concert series Auditory Reset where we introduced many wonderful musicians with their exceptional programmes. We are so happy to create a new platform where the audience can perceive music in a unique way – closer to the musician and the piece itself; to stop, recharge and refocus their mind into somethings else. Thanks to all the cooperating organisations – Frerik de Jong for providing artistic and technical support, Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ for their promotional help and A Lab for providing a space. Many thanks to financial supporters such as MaySways or AFK too. Below you can find some pictures as a flashback to the concerts.
The summer went by so quickly and here we are in the beautiful, colourful autumn again!
As promised, we are introdusing our new concert series ‘Auditory Reset‘ in October 2022!
Join us on the second Tuesday, each month, from 18:00 for a quick 30-minute music reset, where you can recharge your energy and refocus your mind from your busy day-to-day work! We are performing in the amazing space of A Lab, Amsterdam North.
We are starting on the 11th of October 2022 with the amazing Dutch violinist Jellantsje de Vries who will perform two great composers of our time – Luciano Berio and John Luther Adams.
Check out our invitation video below to get a bit of the atmosphere we are going to share with you!
More information and the full program can be found here.
Looking forward to meeting you there!
We couldn’t ask for a better finale of this season! Our Summer Launch of the upcoming new project ‘Auditory Reset‘ was an amazing final point to wrap up the past and look forward to the future!
Soon, we are going to have a PROMO video from this great 2-day event which we are already looking forward to share with you!
Our thanks go to: A-Lab for giving us the Playground, 7 Mountain Records for the technical support, Marcus van den Munckhof for video making, MaySways for the financial support and of course all the musicians for participating: Marleen Wester, Arthur Klaassens, Gareth Davis, Markéta Schaffartzik and Sietse van Erve.
For those wondering what Aus Den Sieben Tagen project feels like, we have two small video samples to peak into. The first comes from the amazing performance in Prague this April and the second shows how much fun we have preparing it. 🙂
Thanks go to the Prague Music Performance festival for making the videos.
Even through some Covid-19 restrictions, our planned concert of Talking with Charlie could happen at the beginning of November in Deventer. We got a warm welcome from teams of MIMIK and De Perifeer and a great reaction from the audience. This concert was supported by The Swiss Arts Council – Pro Helvetia and also attended by Swiss Ambassador.
What an amazing closing performance of Aus Den Sieben Tagen at Rewire x Dag in de Branding festival! We were delighted to be the final act of the festival. We have already received a great review at De Volkskrant (in Dutch). You can look below at some pictures and videos captured during the performance or check more here.
